Event Details

Entrepreneurs Week | Opening Event, supported by the Department of State Development and the Adelaide City Council

The Department of State Development, Investment Attraction South Australia and the City of Adelaide, along with Brand South Australia invite you to help kick start Entrepreneurs Week for 2017, celebrating and embracing South Australia as the place where entrepreneurs thrive. 

South Australia is an opportunity-rich environment with robust support programs available to entrepreneurs – for start-ups as well as established enterprises.  A huge number of success stories have come from our flourishing start-up community.   Innovation from within or intrapreneurship has driven the success of numerous South Australian companies. 

The day will be officially opened by the Premier of South Australia, the Hon Jay Weatherill MP, and the Lord Mayor of Adelaide, the Right Hon Martin Haese, after which guests will hear from keynote speaker Suzi Soza, Don Dunstan Foundation’s Specialist Thinker in Residence.

Suzi is the Co-Founder and CEO of Verb.  Verb enables brands to authentically engage their employees and customers through their cloud-based platform and global social innovation network.  Previously Suzi led the Social Entrepreneurship program at the University of Texas at Austin where she oversaw the Dell Social Innovation Challenge, a student social venture competition involving more than 10,000 entrepreneurs from 110 countries.

Guests will also hear addresses by acclaimed speakers and inspiring South Australian entrepreneurs, run during three concurrent sessions following morning tea, each focusing on two sub-themes within entrepreneurship and innovation.

Connectedness

  • Coworking – the power of many. Coworking has become a catalyst for collaboration and innovation among start-ups and Adelaide has more coworking spaces per capita than any city in Asia.  Why is this important?
  • Connecting South Australia – Gigabit speeds and what you can achieve

Reinvention

  • B-Corporations with speakers from Dirt Build, Freerange Future, and Verb.
  • Intrapreneurship: Innovation-led Enterprise Growth, with speakers from DNA Security Solutions, Smart Group and Flinders University

Technology and Creative Industries

  • Making Mixed Reality a Market Reality presented by Lawrence Crumpton, Hololens Evangelist,  Microsoft
  • Spatial to Space with speakers from Airbus, Neumann Space and Fleet Space Technologies, Speedcast, Myriota
